Nama Chocolate


 This recipe is the most delicious, straightforward, and simple way to make chocolate at home. All you need are whole milk and dark chocolate. It’s an even tastier version of the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate from your childhood that you can feel good about eating!

Nama Chocolate


  • 10 oz whole milk  
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate  
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
  • A pinch of salt 


Fill a small saucepan with milk. Bring milk to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low and stir in chocolate until it melts completely into the milk. 

If using real chocolate, increase the heat to medium-high and cook stirring constantly until it is completely melted. For chocolate chips or chunks, place all ingredients in a glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. 

Stir well to combine. Adjust the chocolate's consistency with additional milk or microwave for 1 minute at a time if needed, stirring well after each addition. 

Transfer to a glass bowl and stir until completely smooth. Finish by stirring in vanilla and salt. Store leftovers in the fridge (in an airtight container) for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
